My boyfriend and I are looking to get a very small "cabin" to live in and rent to own. We don t really want to get an apartment because we think of it as throwing money away. We found a nice little cabin that is 560 sq ft that is perfect for us. Problem is we need a small piece of land to put it on. I believe 1,000 sq ft should be enough for the cabin and to put our cars. I can t seem to find any pricing ideas on how much 1,000 sq ft of land would be and we would love an idea of how much it would be. If anyone can answer an estimate of how much y all think it would be, I would really appreciate it!!
sorry, but there are NO lots only 1000 sq ft. that is only 30×30 +/=
No one is going to sell a parcel that small, it's only 1/40 of an acre. You probably won't find anything less than 1/4 acre and you'd be hard pressed to find that. Plus any municipality requires a certain distance from the lot lines for the house to be set back.
Pretty small cabin on 1k sq ft. Do you mean that will be the size of the cabin?
Where in TX????? Downtown in a city will be far more expensive than pasture land in the middle of nowhere.
1,000 square feet will not hold the cabin. Almost all jurisdictions have a minimum side and front/back set back – usually 10 feet or more. You cabin is about 20 by 30, so your setback makes the minimum lot size 40 by 50 which is 2,000 square feet. In all honesty, I have never seen a lot size less than 1/5 an acre, which is about 8,000 square feet. Having said that, a quick look on Zillow show lots from 1/3 an acre and up going for about $7,000 plus depending n on where you want to live (lots in or near cities will be more expensive).
1000 sf is not sufficient, unless the land has city water and sewer. If you need a well and septic system, you will require far more land than you suggest. That being said, rare is the landowner who will sell that small a parcel.
Land prices and suitable to have property on will depend on where in the world it is and what price you pay, you are likely to need land which you will have to get planning permission for, so it is a case of looking for vacant land in the area you want to live, finding out who owns it ( land registry) contacting them and asking if they wish to sell it, searching for 'land for sale' in a certain area, looking at private and local authorities selling. In some places residents have got permission on a part of their garden and sell it off…lots of research
All cities and counties have a minimum lot size so you would have to check with your local zoning department. But I doubt they permit lots that small.
